Given that soldiers normally retire at, or before, 45, you have missed the bus! You could, however, volunteer to rattle cans for the RBL Poppy Appeal.

Nowt! Upper age limit for soldiers is 43!

Can sneak off on tour if no one notices how old they are.

You can do nothing I am afraid...too old unless you have a transferable civvie skill. The RAMC will take you if you are a State Registered Nurse, a Paramedic or any other number of specialist medical roles..but otherwise its off to the ACF with you.

Having said that, you can apply to the RAF Regiment Auxillary as a Gunner. They take upto the age of 50 with previous military experience.

Lifeboat crew if you live near the coast. Mountain/Cave rescue?

I think you'll be too old for the Navy, the RFA would take you up to 62 but it has no part time service as far as I'm aware.

don't RM have cadets? You could become an Instructor perhaps?

I like the bit "On the day of his arrest Member B had a large number of items confiscated from his home by the police, including Cornish flags, a history book and papers relating to Kernow Branch activity and he was hoping that his possessions would be returned to him on the day he answered his bail." They sound really dangerous to me ...should send em to Guantanamo:)

You are clearly well qualified to collect tickets so maybe you should turn your attentions to the local bus company instead?
